  • Calvin R. Tucker of Pennsylvania, for the remainder of a term expiring December 8, 2023.
  • Robert M. Duncan of Kentucky, for the remainder of a seven-year term expiring December 8, 2018, and an additional term expiring December 8, 2025.
  • David Williams of Illinois, for the remainder of a seven-year term expiring December 8, 2019.

The lack of Governors is the stated reason the USPS does not have a 2018 Promotion schedule.

NOTE: Confirmation is still required by the Senate. There is no timeline. Previous administrations have nominated governors, but they were blocked by Senator Sanders. No nomination has been confirmed since 2010. The same roadblock is not anticipated this round, but getting on the schedule for confirmation may be an issue.
